Religion as Political Communication: A Symposium

Loughborough University’s Centre for Research in Communication and Culture is organising an event on Religion as Political Communication on 7th June 2018.

Religion as Political Communication: A Symposium

10:00 – 16:00, 7th June 2018

Religion is communicated politically in multiple ways: by religious institutions and individuals, by governments with different approaches to religion, via various artistic and cultural expressions, by secular news media, and via digital platforms and communities (Lundby 2017). The types and contents of politically communicated religion are diverse and complex, ranging from the Church of England’s conservative stance on marriage as reserved for heterosexual couples, French lawmakers interpreting religious symbols such as the veil as ‘too political’, the West-End musical success ‘The Book of Mormon’, terrorist acts of violence committed in the name of religion, to representations of ‘Muslims’ as a non-diversified group. Religion can communicate political stances in both direct and indirect ways, such as when drawings of the Prophet Mohammad are considered as unacceptably irreverent expressions of free speech, or when specific positions on abortion, creationism, stem-cell research and euthanasia are inferred when someone declares their stance as ‘religious’. In this symposium, internationally leading scholars on religion and politics are invited to address and debate religion as political communication.

“Sacrament and Liturgy in Digital Spaces”

CODEC Research Centre for Digital Theology
Durham University, UK
April 19-20 2018

In a rapidly developing technological age, the question of church online is both highly relevant and highly contentious.

Join the CODEC Research Centre for Digital Theology and special guests for a symposium exploring the questions of sacrament and liturgy in digital spaces.

The event begins at 5pm on Thursday April 19th with an evening meal and a lecture by Dr Jana Bennett (University of Ohio, author of “Aquinas on the Web?” (Bloomsbury 2012)). We continue from 10am to 4pm on Friday April 20th, with a day of talks, conversations and panel discussions exploring new ideas in digital theology. Invited speakers include Professor Paul Fiddes (University of Oxford) and Rev. Pam Smith (priest-in-charge of i-church and author of “Online Mission and Ministry” (SPCK 2015)).

Lecture: “Ignored Arab Christian Voices: Contextual Theology in the Era of Colonial Modernity”

The Von Hügel Institute for Critical Catholic Inquiry together with the Faculty of Divinity and the DAAD-University of Cambridge Research Hub for German Studies invite you to the public lecture:

Ignored Arab Christian Voices: Contextual Theology in the Era of Colonial Modernity by Professor Heidemarie Winkel (University of Bielefeld and DAAD Visiting German Scholar, Cambridge)

on Monday 25 September, 4pm.

VENUE: Runcie Room, Faculty of Divinity, West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9BS
ABSTRACT
Within Palestine, Arab Christians are publicly visible as providers of religiously based discourses on social solidarity and the common good, for example in the form of contextual theologies. The paper shortly reflects how far this has to be seen against the background of colonial history, both with British and with German roots, and to what extent Arab Christians construct their socio-political identity against the background of entangled histories as well as the ongoing reality of socio-political crisis today. A second concern is how contextual theologies relate to the European public and how Arab Christian subaltern voices are coming to the attention of a western-European public.
Heidemarie Winkel is Professor of Sociology at the University of Bielefeld (Germany). She will present some highlights from her research as DAAD Visiting German Scholar based at the VHI, St Edmund’s College, University of Cambridge. Professor Winkel specializes in sociology of religion, gender, and Arab societies. She is a board member of several sociological research networks and editorial boards, including the Council of the International Society for the Sociology of Religion (ISSR) and the Journal for Religion, Society and Politics. Recent publications: Multiple Religiosities, Entangled Modernities and Gender: What is Different about Gender Across Religious Cultures?, Journal for Religion, Society and Politics 1(1), 2017;  with K. Sammet (eds), Thinking Religion Sociologically: Reflections on Current Theoretical and Empirical Developments, Springer, 2017.

The event is free and open to all. Please find attached a poster for further circulation. For more information visit www.vhi.st-edmunds.cam.ac.uk.
